Tokyo Ghoul:re Chapter 27: The Chosen One
The time draws near.
Are you ready for this? Is your body ready?
the chosen one’s body isn’t
I’m not sure I am – it’s so sudden! :re took a short break for Golden Week, but it’s back now, and it’s getting Sasarious at last. It’s actually not too surprising that Haise has had this much trouble with Takizawa. After all, it’s not like he’s First-Class or anything – the current him is merely ‘Rank 1 Sasaki’ with a lot of latent power. And he was getting thrashed by S-rated Nishiki before he was partially taken over by Kaneki. Here, it’s clear that Takizawa wants to utterly destroy him, and Haise really has no option but to give in to Kaneki unless somebody else turns up to intercept Takizawa – and this person would have to be strong enough to do so, which makes that possibility even more unlikely given that the other doves at the auction are all occupied. Haise has a choice of either dying for certain, or taking a gamble that he might disappear if he calls on Kaneki – we don’t know if his current personality will completely dissolve, or whether it’ll merge with Kaneki or otherwise. I think it really is time for his return, although it would have been nice if a more significant character like Amon or Hide was the one to do it.
As for Takizawa, he’s been saying some interesting things. First of all, he knows a lot. If he’s talking about Kanou and the kakuhou-implanting experiments, he knows all about Kaneki – Eto must have told him a lot. Hell, even Ayato knows about the current state of Kaneki as Haise. All his former friends and enemies should be aware to some extent. Takizawa says: “I have to weaken the enemy before I can talk to them”. It oddly sounds like something Eto told him – because it feels like he’s saying: “I have to weaken Haise enough to bring Kaneki out, so I can talk to him properly as a fellow survivor of the experiment”. His desire to win and prove his superiority might trump any desire to talk though.
I don’t think there’s a lot to say about Shirazu this week, other than that I hope his balls stay intact. Instead, it’s all about Urie. I laughed when he called himself the ‘chosen one’. That was seriously hilarious. I know I said I don’t like Urie, but… I don’t hate him enough to want him to die! I want him to suffer, so his ego deflates enough to make him a workable person, but it’d be really lame if he died now. I wonder if he’s a goner – Big Madam is SS-rated after all, and he looks like it’s already half eaten. If we assume he can’t save himself, who’s there to do it? Juuzou? Mutsuki is useless, and even with a sudden burst of courage it’s not going to help against an SS-rated ghoul. Looks like the Dark Lord won this time, Harry.
